I Am Starting a New Life

    I love getting on social media like this that's

    not crazy popular with my age group. I can post whatever and not be criticized for it really by people who actually know me? It's like starting over at a new school. No one knows anything about me.

    The good days are starting to outnumber the bad.

    The past still stings and tears at my heart, but I recover more quickly. I'm so thankful for new and old friends that love me and make me smile. I know things are about to get worse before they get better... I hold tight to the words, smiles and comforts of those that understand...

    Opening A Jar

    Here I am in the midst of boxes and open closets. Packing up, donating, and throwing out three years of things I have accumulated. Making some new plans to lose weight and find a job. We make the move to the new two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on 1 July 2011. I am nervous but...

    A New Fresh Start

    I've known since I started high school that I'm going to be moving to the states after. At first when this came to my mind I still wasn't quite sure I'm going I don't know why, I just didn't have it in me. But after I graduated I started applying for universities in the US, and I...

    Four Years In A Box

    My house is a wreck, there are boxes lined up by the front door.  Everything is in disarray.  I'm moving with nearly no notice, in two weeks from yesterday.  My partner passed away and since I can't stay here, I'm moving back in with my mom in AZ.  It'll be quite the change...

    Back To 0

    I've wanted a chance to start a new life for as long as I can remember. When I was little I used to pester my mum about moving town, country, state all the time. I hated my life, my entire surroundings. I couldn't understand why my mum moved to Germany from England in the first...

    So excited, starting a new life in Boston.

    Im so worn out from the fight it has taken me to get to this point. It has taken every ounce of my soul to go against all expectations, to say screw it, and take a dare to live my life, my way. I am leaving my world, and entering a place where I don't know a soul, but its...

    Yeah, I am. I plan to leave this site - EP.

    People are either weird, all about sex, are talking to 15 other people at the same time they are talking to you, or both weird and a pervert. Shame in this day and age I can't have conversation with a few out of so many using this sight .........

    Lol. Okay it might just be my new pills

    or something. But I feel so much more happy and alive... I know what it feels like not being afraid to go to school anymore, I don't talk behind people's backs anymore. I have no need to look down on people. Yes I still don't get the point of living and I have bad days... But...

    So I have 3 options: I can start a new

    completely over leaving everyone and everything behind and move to a new state I've never been too and take a leap of faith, move to a state I've lived in before and continue growing, or stay where I am and just be the same forever. I know the risk to all 3 and am really...

    When you decide to make a change,

    your old self has a tendency to pull you back. But if you use all your strength to build your new self, then no matter how many times you fall back, your new self will pull you up again.

    A New Life, In A Tiny Room
